Harken T18 Soft-Attach Block -
Tough and tiny soft-attach block is lighter than a small standard metal shackle. At only 7.2 grams, it is 20 percent lighter and 10 percent smaller than comparably-sized blocks. It ties, splices or lashes just about anywhere, including tight spaces. Excellent complement to T2™ Blocks on skiffs, dinghies and beach cats. Stainless ball bearings in captive races spin the sheave on an integrated 316 stainless steel inner race, providing optimal strength-to-weight. Soft attachment allows the block to articulate and align with loads. A length of 1/16" line is included, which routes through the block head and sheave, reducing loads on the sideplates. Maximum line size is 3/16" (5mm).
